Lucy McBath’s son, Jordan Davis, was killed 8 years ago in a Florida gas station parking lot. Now Congresswoman Lucy McBath has won a second term representing Georgia’s 6th district. She says sharing her story showed her constituents that she would fight for them in Washington. “They learned I do genuinely really care about what happens to them, because what happens to them is representative of what happens to America.” Aired on 11/25/2020.

  1. If we keep our focus on honesty and point our moral compass the way Congresswoman McBath has done, the noise and nonsense will eventually give way to rational thinking and choices about policy based on logic. We can do this.

  6. Imagine if all the Governors, Mayors, election officials and even Judges appointed by Trump didn’t do their jobs.

    If all of them acted like republican senators, we would be crowning our King on inauguration day.

    McBath is one of the most inspirational doers in existence.
    the weight of such tragedy, she used it to create her powers for others.
    a stunning human being.

    It shocks me to hear so many young black people killed seemingly because they are African American. Racism is clearly deeply imbeded in society. And doubtless in other countries. It exists in Australia, just not so blatant.

  11. Remember, America, this is not over. Biden will only be able to satisfy the bigger one if you give the Democrats the power in the Senate, so you have to win Georgia’s two senatorial seats. You know full well the Republicans will filibuster, you can’t trust them!!

    I feel sorry for all the families who will be missing a family member at the dinner table this year on Thanksgiving due to Covid. This terrible disease has inflicted a lot of pain and suffering on families and it’s really a tragedy that so many people have died.

    Georgia is extremely lucky to have a great Congresswoman. Count your blessings Georgia.

  15. I wonder if Lucy ‘s first appearance on “The Last Word” was arranged / booked by his producer who resigned over the “Don’t Give Andrew Yang Airtime” edict at MSNBC? Lawrence looked down-right wistful as Lucy thanked Lawrence for giving her a “national voice”.

  16. President Joe Biden please pick an aggressive DOJ..please let the DOJ pursue all criminal case against the clown and his cronies ..specifically the 8 billion arms deal with Saudi Arabia.

    God has blessed those of us with the gift of getting older. Aging. Developing wisdom if you are that blessed. However, you can never forget what it is like to be young! Obviously, when you get older, you can see young people as a nuisance because of certain things they do. But do not forget that you did the same things when you were young.

  19. I’m sorry for the loss of your handsome son. May God bless you and your family.

  20. I meet her years ago. She has such a beautiful loving, giving and caring spirit.
    God continue to Bless her
